Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

O'Neill's ( Daddy Cool ) sweet, tense, silly, moving story of his New York City family includes his children, Josh, five, and 22-pound Becca, with himself and his wife Jody in supporting roles: feeding and clothing the tyrannical two, applauding terrible kiddie jokes, buying costly toys, etc., all of which are parental efforts taken smugly for granted by the children. But if O'Neill sometimes thinks of himself as King Lear, the children more often fill their father and mother with a joy that makes them feel richer than Croesus. In his re-creation of the family's domestic life, the author shows that love can trivialize all problems. First serial to Parent's magazine and Men's Life.

From Library Journal

"Welcome to a world where apple juice is the nectar of the gods. Welcome to a slow dance of night-lights and snow pants. Welcome to what would be a look at family life through rose-colored glasses, if the kids hadn't sold my glasses to their friend Phil," invites O'Neill in this light-hearted, * Bombeckian romp through contemporary American family life. Family vacations * (and the endless drives thereto), madly assembling Christmas presents at four in the morning, arranging "theme" birthday parties for the three-year-old, desperately trying to find a moment alone with Mom for a quick romance (the cellar? the linen closet? behind the hydrangea bushes?); yes, all the crazy fun of family life is here, and how refreshing it is to see it all through Dad's admittedly loving--and bemused--eyes. A fun addition to public library collections.

Format: Paperback
This is a laugh-out-loud book about parenting. Sweet, sentimental, and touching. Taking care of children is indeed a laughing matter. The author shows us why it's often best to keep your sense of humor and go with the flow
